Screen Leaders is the Leading Strategic Company Development Programme for the Screen Industries.

Screen Training Ireland is excited to announce the selected participants for the 2017 Screen Leaders programme. Top industry leaders from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Hungry, Ireland, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal and Spain will converge in Ireland for the first module of the programme in June.

Screen Leaders provides participants with the skills to lead their organisation in a complex, innovative and evolving international marketplace. It is designed for industry leaders working in film, television, animation, games, post-production, VFX, facilities, sales, distribution and exhibition.

Andy Mason, co-CEO, Altitude Films who tutors on the programme said, ‘Screen Leaders is a really well thought out programme and even though the level of experience and competence of the chosen participants is extremely high, the main benefits to them are gaining access to additional tools and insight to help them navigate their companies through the ever changing environment of film and television.’

The programme is custom designed in consultation with participating companies – it is this bespoke approach which makes the programme unique. Content is tailored to the participants’ requirements, making it relevant to their company and targeting the markets which their business operates within. It supplies companies with an international network that supports growth in business.

The Screen Leaders Programme is funded by the Creative Europe Programme and the Irish Film Board/Bord Scannán na hÉireann.
